TALL OAKS LODGE — ABOUT WINTERGREEN RESORT

One of "ten best" resorts featured in Washingtonian Magazine (September, 2001)

Wintergreen Resort is truly a 4-season resort.  If you're into sports, Wintergreen is the place for you:  Skiing, Golf, Tennis, Swimming, Hiking, and Horseback Riding are major attractions.  On the other hand, if you like quiet walks in the woods, curling up by the fireplace, or sitting on the deck reading a good book, Wintergreen is for you, too, surrounded by oak and hickory, atop the Blue Ridge Mountains.
